Initial Consultation

Contact us by calling our office at 214-924-1232 to schedule your initial consultation. During your consultation, we will thoroughly analyze your immigration case and carefully explain your rights and options. Please note that initial consultations have a fee of $60.00

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM AN IMMIGRATION CONSULTATION

We consider your initial consultation to be a clinical examination. This meeting allows us to get acquainted and to determine the basic nature of your immigration problem. During your immigration consultation, you should expect us to:

  • Review the details of your immigration situation thoroughly
  • Answer questions that you have about your immigration case
  • Explain all immigration benefits for which you may qualify
  • Help you plan an immigration strategy for success
  • Provide you with a fee estimate for your case

WHAT NOT TO EXPECT DURING AN IMMIGRATION CONSULTATION

Attorney Macias, during the consultation, cannot review your paperwork for completeness or accuracy. If you are determined to handle your immigration case on your own, without hiring an attorney, Attorney Macias cannot provide you instruction or advice on how to do that.

CONSULTATION DOES NOT ESTABLISH AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP

We would be honored to have the privilege of handling your immigration case. And we hope that you decide to hire us and become our client. But you do not become a client of our firm simply by having a consultation.  Should you decide to hire us, and should we decide to accept your immigration case, then we would ask you to sign a written representation agreement, spelling out the scope of our services, fees, and other terms and conditions. But consultation alone does not create either an Attorney-Client relationship or any obligation to provide any services other than the consultation itself.

“CAN YOU TELL ME HOW MUCH YOU WILL CHARGE TO HANDLE MY CASE BEFORE MEETING WITH ME?”

We cannot estimate the costs for your case without first meeting with you and reviewing your case carefully. You may believe that your immigration case is straightforward, routine and simple but there may be legal issues or difficulties that you haven’t spotted.

WHAT TO BRING TO YOUR CONSULTATION

Documentation: Bring all documentation related to your immigration matter. The more documentation you bring us, the easier it will be for us to accurately evaluate your immigration options.

Interpreters: If you cannot communicate in English or Spanish, please bring someone with you who can interpret for you. Hablamos español.

Your spouse or fiancé(e): If your immigration case is based on marriage to a US citizen, we ask that both you and your spouse or significant other meet with us.

APPOINTMENT CANCELLATION POLICY

We are committed to providing excellent service. Unfortunately, when a potential client cancels without giving sufficient notice, they prevent another potential client from being seen. Please call us by 2:00 p.m. on the day prior to your scheduled appointment to notify us of any changes or cancellations. To cancel a Monday appointment, please call our office by 2:00 p.m. on Friday. If prior notification is not given, there will be a rescheduling fee.
